BasketBall Update!

Yesterday was the last game of the season.
The boys waiting to get on the court.

We brought along an extra CHEERLEADER, one of Bres friends.

Running some warm up drills.

Tip off!
Mike started in the game, he also MADE THE FIRST BASKET OF THE GAME!

Under the hoop, working to get open.

Guarding his guy.

Some more guarding.

Mike had several shots and numerous rebounds.

Making sure he is boxed out.

Visiting with the coach during half time, just one minute left till the second half starts.

The last two pictures I took, I wanted to be free to cheer the boys along.

A lot can change at the end of a game. Final score was 38 to 40, sadly we lost in the last few seconds.

On Friday Bre underwent Allergy Testing.  I was NOT excited about doing this, but it had to be done to give my daughter the safe life that she is entitled to. 
Her Dr. was great, taking time to understand why we were there, and helping us to get the answers that we needed.  I have known for a long time what I was dealing with and have worked hard to find ways to make this better for her.  With the Dr.s help I learned that most of what I was doing for her was right, he also gave us several more tips and the backup that was needed.  So the outcome is that she is Allergic to several dogs (we knew), Ragweed (we knew), Black Willow and two types of mold.  We also had her tested for feathers (just in case), good news we get to keep the bird.

(and yes Eczema, Allergies, and Asthma are all tied together)

It is finally here!!
Mike's basketball poster!  Mike has played a lot of ball over the years and the last three years they have had picture opportunities.  We have done the cards, team pics,  bag tag, individual pictures and so on.  One that we did not have was the poster.  Fun memories!

My 3 little ones.

My Brother and Sara were very thoughtful this year.  Remembering how much I loved penguins, they found this for me.  He pointed out that there are THREE little babies and he knows how much I love MY 3 little ones.  Thank you for such a loving gift!
